United Regional is pleased to offer avid learners the opportunity to shadow our Physicians during work rounds to enhance their learning and exposure to the practice of medicine. This is a hands-off shadowing experience. Learners will have the opportunity to observe physician’s interaction with patients (with the patient’s permission), engaging in thoughtful discussion of clinical cases, reviewing medical literature, enhancing clinical knowledge, and experiencing teamwork involved in care for our patients with opportunities of scholarly activities.

If you are interested in registering for the shadowing program, please complete and submit the form below. Shadowing opportunities are available year-round.

To be a part of our Observation Program, you must have a valid TB test that has had the results read within the last 90 days, a current flu shot during flu season (September-March). Please submit these documents with your information and we will contact you.

*Our clinical departments do not offer observation or shadowing opportunities during the college semester, as we have many nursing students engaged in clinical rotations during that time. Observation and shadow requests will be accepted during the breaks (Christmas, Spring, Summer, etc.).

*This program is not related to clinical rounds or internships. Please direct any requests that you have for these services to the Clinical Education department at (940) 764-7913.
